HAPPY BIRTHDAY EVA JENAE....(well almost)!!!!!!

EJ's (Eva Jenae's) birthday is tomorrow!  I swear this child starts the countdown to her birthday the day after her birthday!  I can't believe she'll be 8! ...too bad we can't just freeze time when we want :(  For her birthday, we plan to celebrate at home...just the 4 of us.  My husband and I have selected a gift for her that'll keep her pretty busy ;)

So, I've been working on a multi-purpose oil for a few months now and I finally found the perfect combination of avocado, grapeseed, and organic coconut oil infused with vanilla beans.  The scent of the coconut oil blended with vanilla smells DELICIOUS!  It is lightweight, easily absorbed and provides extraordinary moisture and nourishment to your hair, skin, and face.  To read more about the benefits of these oils visit Our Ingredients page.  I'm still working on a name and finalizing packaging, but will be sure to let you know when it will be available at  

Six handmade soaps are curing as we speak will be available the 1st week of October. Aren't they beautiful? (we'll highlight each them in another post)

Until next time my friends,

Isn't she gorgeous???? Her smile just lights up my world!  Eva and I had a photoshoot a couple of months back and she was just hammin' it up!  Special thanks to Ashley Marie Photography for the fabulous shots! (
Well summer's almost over, the kiddos are back in school,  AND I CAN FINALLY BREATHE!!!!!!!!!!  The past few months have been a rollercoaster and I'm thankful everything is settling down. 

Things got really crazy around here when my hubby (who's active duty Air Force) returned home early from Afghanistan.  No, he wasn't injured in combat....he ruptured his achilles  playing basketball....SMH.  Nevertheless, his injury required surgery, physical therapy, and me being his nurse and chauffeur.  I was more than happy to take care of him, but I'm certainly glad he's back on his feet.  Even his cast couldn't stop him from shooting around with our son! that was a sight

I am ABSOLUTELY THRILLED about the direction Eva Jenae Naturals is headed!  For can now find our products on the shelves of Simply Vague in The Mall at Tuttle Crossing in Columbus, OH! Simply Vague has a second location opening late September at Polaris Fashion Place and will also carry our products there.  YAAAYYYYYYYYY! 

That's not all- I'm finalizing the details on our wholesale and fundraising programs to launch by the end of September.  Yep, it's a lot of work, but I LOVE IT!!!!!!

Oh, I almost forgot.....I changed our labels.... AGAIN ;) The white labels were a little too plain and my fear was that they wouldn't stand out on store shelves. I switched to the kraft labels to fit in with the whole "natural" theme, but the material was not waterproof and absorbed whatever oil or water it came in contact with. I was not a happy camper.  The current label is waterproof and has a parchment type background.  I like it, but let me know what you think.
